Hi Folks,

So I copy/pasted some text I was working on into Scrivener. Unfortunately, it is formatted differently from the stuff I wrote in other texts in Scrivener for the same project. For example, Tab is really long, like two tabs. Also, when I work on this text and hit Tab--it's two tabs.

Is there an easy way to get the formatting the same as in my other text objects?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

If you haven't tried this...

Edit > Paste and Match Style

(shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+V)
I'm a Scrivener enthusiast and experienced in PC/network support... but I am not a Scrivener expert. And I'm still editing on my first book. So take any opinion or advice I offer with a large grain of salt.

Hmm, doesn't seem to have worked. I'm sure I'm just not grasping something here.
